EHL Calgary

We are Emerging Health Leaders Calgary. Are you an emerging health leader? Whether you’re working in health, doing health research, or are a post-secondary student in a health-related program, we’d love to meet you! 

In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that we live, work, and play on traditional territories in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta. The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.

About The Calgary Node

We represent a diverse group of emerging health leaders, including clinical and allied healthcare professionals, health information, promotion, and advocacy professionals, and students in health-related programs.

We are an active EHL node with over 290 active members. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with seasoned mentors, meet friends, and collaborate with other emerging health leaders!

Since we first formed in February 2011, we’ve steadily grown and continue to provide future health leaders with an array of new skills and opportunities, including:

  • mentorship
  • community events
  • education
  • leadership

We’ve recently expanded our node to include areas outside of Calgary. But wherever you are in Alberta, we welcome you to join our node or our node to the north in Edmonton. 

Calgary Executive Team

Our talented Executive Team is composed of 2 co-chairs and a team of directors. We currently offer virtual opportunities and look forward to in-person events in the future. 

Stay tuned for more Executive Team opportunities!!
